The MCe remote is supported by Media Portal natively, so most probably, you won't have any problems.
The blaster part (to control other devices like set-top boxes) is also supported, but that takes some more work.

    Also, if you get the choice, go for the European 2005 version. It has the fou extra colour teletext buttons down the bottom and these are used as shortcut keys to make MP a LOT easier to use.

    If you have XP PRO SP2 or MCE, it should work straight out of the "box". If you have XP Home, you'll need to play withsome extra files, but it's not too hard.

    Where's a good place to buy this remote? I've looked all over the interweb but usually they don't specify what model they are... Should I get one of the ones listed on Newegg or from somewhere else? See link...

    I see what you mean now. Too bad that site doesn't ship internationally :-(. I'll keep looking and post any findings I get here for others.

    I bought the european version of the MS media center remote. the problem is i cant get it to work. It works on my gaming machine with service pack 2 installed, but i cant install SP2 on my media machine. You said it was possible to get this to work with a XP pro version without service pack 2. How can i do this? thanks

    I guess from this, that the mapping steps basically work. Please try to map some of the keys you mention to be not working and upload the log files afterwards. Maybe @Brownard can see something and a solution can be found. Please open a thread in the OnlineVideo section for this, we should not mix 2 topics in one thread.

    Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.

    thank you very much for your quick response. Obviously 1.30 seems to support wifiRemote and mpextented so I can continue to use MPiviewer for ipad and that's what was important to me. it's nice to have taken the time for my problem which will undoubtedly be useful to others as well.

    I had the same feeling about MP1, nothing was working out of the box, it was full of hardcoded dependencies and bugs. That’s how I came to MP2 and I’m very happy with it ;)
